I love movies. Not only do I love the story, but I also love to examine the sets to see how the characters are supposed to live. There are times that I don't love a film, but I love the set. One set that I'd move into any day is "You've Got Mail".

See those botanical prints by the door? I just love the simplicity of the prints in glass, with no molding. I went to my favorite resources for free vintage images, The Graphics Fairy and started searching. I have used so many free images from that site that my house should have a sign that says, "Courtesy of the Graphics Fairy".

What I ended up doing is using the glass fronts of the frames with plates holders on the back, holding the image in place & giving me something to hang on the wall.
I put them up in two rows of 4 & I'm really happy with how it turned out:
